Solitude’s flowered wall paper….





Solitude recommends this loony

Flowering wall paper to ornament

Tampered weeks, to paint in those

fresh pink strawberries of survival

The red rose that gleamed in that


Forgotten garden, or that red book of

Rumi’s poetry that just missed the

Vomit from the Tortoise Shell who

Always does it where she should not


The startlingly good Bengali thriller

that turned up on You Tube, called

Bodhisattwa, and held you in thrall

The rose that glimmered drenched

And iced Inside the morning dream


Dripping poetry like silver raindrops

That easy spinach & potato recipe

From a blogger that fed cheesy magic

Badly coveted during the dribbles

Of this deadening, hiding under

The grubby stairwell, to just wait


For hope surely planning a visit

To then arrive wearing yellow boots

Along with the post & its large brown

crinkling paper package crammed with

tender tempting recipes for surfacing


from the deluge of disillusionment

to come out from under the stairs!
